The household really lived a brief stroll away at 22 Gladstone Avenue. That website was marked with a blue plaque in 2016.
Mercury died in 1991 aged 45 because of problems from AIDS. The Mercury Phoenix Belief, a charity arrange after his demise, helps initiatives preventing HIV and AIDS worldwide.
